According to local media, today may mark the end of Allen Iverson’s free agent odyssey. Or, you know, not: “Free agent guard Allen Iverson finally is about to live up to his moniker. Iverson – known as The Answer – is expected to give the Grizzlies an answer Friday on whether he’ll accept their one-year offer, according to sources with knowledge of the negotiations … More than a week has passed since the Grizzlies offered Iverson a contract using money the team has left under the salary cap. The Griz can pay Iverson at least $3.5 million or about $4.4 million should they renounce their rights to Spanish guard Juan Carlos Navarro. The latter figure wouldn’t be much less than the $5 million Memphis was willing to pay Iverson at the start of the free-agent period. The Griz are also prepared to add incentives to the deal.”
